Postdoc position for molecular cancer biology
A postdoc position is available at Wang laboratory, Baylor College of Medicine. The individual will be working on our integrative genomics initiatives aimed at discovering oncogenes, predictive biomarkers, and therapeutic targets in breast cancer from next-generation sequencing and genomic datasets. The topics of molecular cancer biology studies include genomic instability, DNA damage response, and recurrent gene fusions in breast cancer.
The primary responsibilities of this position include experimental validation of newly discovered cancer genes and targets in breast cancer, confirming their role in tumorigenesis, genomic instability, and therapeutic resistance in vitro and in vivo, and elucidating their molecular mechanisms and clinical applications. Candidate will be exposed to state-of-the-art cancer biology technologies and receive unique integrated training on molecular cancer biology, bioinformatics, and translational researches. Candidate can also option to perform integrative bioinformatics analysis of multi-dimensional genomics and sequencing datasets for breast cancer.
We are looking for highly motivated applicants who have a strong background and hands-on experience in cancer biology and genomic instability. Candidate must have a Ph.D. and have less than 3 years of postdoctoral experience in a related field. Preference will be given to those with an outstanding publication record in cancer research, and those with established skills on breast cancer biology, DNA damage biology, or homologous repair mechanisms.
Wang laboratory is a cancer genomics and molecular targeting lab at Lester & Sue Smith Breast Center and Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center, Baylor College of Medicine. The long-term goal of this lab is to apply a multiple disciplinary approach inclusive of bioinformatics, genetics, molecular and cell biology, and preclinical studies to detect driving genetic aberrations and qualify viable cancer targets on the basis of high-throughput biotechnologies.
